Foguang Dictionary of Buddhism (佛光大辭典)  梵語preta,巴利語peta。即具有恐怖形相、令人惱害之怪物。為五道之一,六道之一。通常指逝者、死人之精魂而言。大乘佛教經典于六道中所立之餓鬼道,為遭諸天驅使而常苦飢渴者。另有弊鬼、有威德鬼、無威德鬼、多財餓鬼、無財餓鬼等,皆住于閻魔王界。古代印度,人死後不被供養,則被推測為鬼,而收集此類餓鬼之事蹟,稱為餓鬼事經(巴Petavatthu ),為南傳大藏經小部經之一。佛經中所言之阿傍、羅剎、山精、雜魅等,皆為鬼神。另兇暴之精靈、地獄之獄卒,亦為鬼之一種。
 此外,據俱舍論卷八載,鬼有胎生、化生二種。另據阿毗達磨順正理論卷三十一舉出炬口鬼、針口鬼、臭口鬼、針鐵毛鬼、臭毛鬼、癭鬼、希祀鬼、希棄鬼、大勢鬼等九種鬼。又佛典中,冠以‘鬼’字之名相極多,如鬼類世界,稱為鬼趣;閻羅王之使者,稱為鬼使;陷于種種邪見,稱為鬼家、鬼家活計、鬼窟裡;鬼魅所造成之災難,稱為鬼難;受鬼魅附著而生病,稱為鬼病;缺乏見識,所知未徹,稱為鬼解;若畜生道與餓鬼道合稱之,則稱鬼畜。﹝賢愚經卷十三、佛本行集經卷四十九﹞(參閱‘九類鬼’161、‘鬼神’4366)

Ding Fubao - Dictionary for Buddhist Studies (丁福保:佛學大辭典) (異類)梵語薜荔多Preta,舊譯餓鬼。新譯鬼。名義集二曰:“婆沙雲:鬼者畏也,謂虛葉轡貳S滯也,能令他畏其威也。又希求為鬼,謂彼餓鬼,恆從他人希求飲食,以活性命。”文句四下曰:“鬼者,胡言^梨多(^閉之寫誤),秦言祖父。眾生最初生彼道,故名祖父。後生者亦名祖父。又慳貪墮此趣,此趣多飢渴,故名餓鬼。亦被諸天驅使,亦希望飲食,故名餓鬼。”鬼之種類極多,或如夜叉羅剎,有通力害人者,或如餓鬼常苦飢渴者。此中六趣中之鬼,是說餓鬼也。【參見: 餓鬼】

陳義孝佛學常見辭彙 六道眾生之一,有種種的分別,福報差的叫無財鬼,時常沒有得吃,所以也叫餓鬼;有些雖有飲食,但是不夠,叫少財鬼;有些福報大,常得飲食,叫多財鬼。
